LEOPARD 40 NEW

The brand new Leopard has only just been announced at the autumn boat shows, but it is now much-awaited. It must be said that this 40-footer has the difficult task of replacing the successful and much-appreciated Leopard 39 in the range.
We will however have to wait until the Miami Boat Show to see it, as this is when it will be presented to the public for the first time. Designed by the architects Simonis and Voogd, the new Leopard 40 is along the same lines as the new range of 44 and 48s, with notably a completely revised interior, a very modern design and a forward cockpit accessible from the interior. In addition to simplifying the movements of the passengers aboard, this forward facing opening guarantees excellent ventilation in tropical climates.
Just like the whole of the Leopard range, the new 40 will be available in a specific version for the charter company Moorings, under the name Moorings 4000, and we should very quickly be able to sail aboard it from most of the company’s bases, in the months to come.
